Twitter Helps Budget Minded Entrepreneurs!

Using Twitter to expand your reach and build your brand is a cinch, but there is a catch. Don't just sign up and start spamming other users with messages about what you sell. You need to create a community first. Do not use Twitter only to sell something.

It is important to communicate honestly and understand the people with whom you are connecting. Do not be scared to put personal messages out there too.

Think of it as a cocktail party, like you are joining a bunch of people talking about something, Twitter lets you network with like-minded people and promote yourself, but it is not about a hard sell at all.

Because Twitter will probably function more as a supplement to the marketing of your business, I recommend having a blog to which you can drive traffic to.
